Getting started: Goals

Client engagement is one of the most important factors in driving client success. Receiving personalized recommendations, ongoing support, and real-time feedback allow clients to make ongoing changes towards a healthier life. One way to promote client engagement, and success, is by collaborating with clients to create realistic, and achievable wellness goals. Setting wellness goals with your clients provides them with the  actions they need to take, and the direction they need to move in. 


Overview: Goal Setting in Healthie 

With Healthie's Goal Setting Feature, wellness providers and clients can: 

  • Create daily, weekly and one-time goals (and subgoals) for clients
  • Visit a client's chart to see all current, and past, goals 
  • Monitor a client's success by seeing goal completion rates for each day, and each goal
  • From their client portal, clients can check off completed goals or subgoals
  • Clients can receive in-app or email reminders to complete goals, and wellness providers can adjust the frequency of these notifications
  • Be motivated towards consistently achieving goal completion streaks   

How to create a new goal

  • Click on the Goals tab of a client's Healthie profile. By default, both providers and clients have the ability to create a goal. 
  • Click "Create Goal" and a goal creation tool will appear
  • Fill in your goal details (or apply a past favorite goal to auto-fill) 
  • To save, hit the blue "Create Goal" button. 

For your convenience, we've included several "Preset" goals that can help you get started, called "Goal Favorites" Feel free to select these goals, and modify them for your client-base.
